DivX 5.0: From T-shirt To Dress Suit

Revolt: How About "Popping"?

DivX 5.0 has its price after all. If you have the money, you're best off buying the pro version for $30. If you're not ready to pay this amount, you can download the banner-sponsored version from the Web site. This is free, but you will have to put up with the sporadic advertisements, which DivX Networks has chosen Gain to provide. But it is annoying when pop-up windows are used, suddenly appearing on the desktop.

Only the standard version has remained true to old traditions: you get it for free and without advertising, but you cannot use the expanded range of encoding functions. In any case, it is sufficient for playback of DivX/ MPEG-4 videos.
